Mookie Betts came to the Boston Red Sox’s rescue Thursday afternoon, and he thoroughly enjoyed doing so.
The Red Sox right-fielder erased a day of frustration at Miller Park by crushing a three-run home run off Milwaukee Brewers closer Neftali Feliz in the ninth inning. Betts’ blast, his fifth of the season, broke a late tie and lifted Boston to a 4-1 win.
Betts isn’t exactly known for his over-the-top celebrations, but after this laser shot, he didn’t hold back.
Now, that’s swagger.
The 24-year-old has good reason to boast, as he now has 10 hits in his last four games and has tallied nine RBIs in that span.
